While the peaks of New York's Shawangunk Mountains might not be as savage as those of the Northern Rockies (oh, how I miss home), within the nooks and crannies of these rolling hills, one can find some pretty spectacular landscapes. On a rainy day in April, I ventured out to find some choice spots and was rewarded with a series of waterfalls and a rather interesting reclaimed hydroelectric power facility of some sort.
I shot primarily in 720p at 60fps with the goal of conforming to 23.796 to slow down the movement of the water (falls and rain). Dolly moves were ghetto-rigged by pivoting the tripod on two legs. 8mm film effects were a complete after thought ... added at the last minute just because I was interested in trying to replicate the effect piecemeal (no effect presets).
Equipment: Canon 7D (50mm f1.8, 18-105mm f3.5). Resolution/Frame Rate: 720p/59.94 (conformed 23.976 in After Effects CS5). Edited in Avid 6.0.1 with 8mm film and light leak stylings applied in After Effects.
